Nashville SC

MLS power ratings: Week 14, 2021

For an explainer, hit up the first edition of the 2021 ratings, and if you have additional queries, don’t hesitate to drop me a line on social media. The full table with all the details you could possible want lives here.

  1. (↔︎) New York City FC 1.34
  2. (↑1) DC United 0.93
  3. (↓1) Sporting Kansas City 0.91
  4. (↑1) Los Angeles Football Club 0.73
    • Despite the loss to Portland, LAFC was fairly dominant in the run of play. Not much of that is gamestate, either: from the 16th minute until second-half stoppage time, this was a tie ballgame, and Portland was barely holding on (a plan that worked, with the stoppage-time winner giving all three points to the hosts).
  5. (↑3) New England Revolution 0.53
  6. (↔︎) Seattle Sounders 0.42
  7. (↔︎) Minnesota United FC 0.40
  8. (↑1) New York Red Bulls 0.26
  9. (↓5) Nashville SC 0.26
    • A two-part slide for Nashville. LAFC and New England (in particular) were big climbers from the weekend. Most of the rest of it, however, was about Nashville’s huge xG deficit on the road at Columbus. Nashville did begin to close the gap between its advanced and realized numbers, though.
  10. (↑2) Philadelphia Union 0.03
  11. (↓1) Orlando City SC 0.00
  12. (↓1) Chicago Fire 0.00
  13. (↑4) Austin FC -0.07
  14. (↓1) Colorado Rapids -0.08
  15. (↓1) CF Montreal -0.19
  16. (↑5) FC Dallas -0.29
    • FCD has been bad enough that treading water with approximately level xG (on the road against a pretty good Colorado team) saw a huge jump.
  17. (↑1) San Jose Earthquakes -0.31
  18. (↑5) Columbus Crew -0.36
  19. (↑3) Atlanta United FC -0.39
  20. (↓1) Real Salt Lake -0.40
  21. (↓6) Portland Timbers FC -0.41
  22. (↓6) Toronto FC -0.46
  23. (↓3) Inter Miami CF -0.51
    • Inter Miami didn’t have a ton of room to go down, but go down the Herons did.
  24. (↑1) Los Angeles Galaxy -0.60
  25. (↓1) Vancouver Whitecaps FC -0.64
  26. (↔︎) Houston Dynamo -0.71
  27. (↔︎) Fußball Club Cincinnati -0.82
